Hey Chippers. I was looking to get a sample set of the Monte Carlo Poker Club chips from Apache but they are no longer in stock. So has anyone tried the smooth Monte Carlo chips from ThePokerStore.com or should I just wait until they are restocked at Apache? My biggest criteria is that I don't want chips with rough edges. Are the edges really smooth as advertised on the Poker Store website (see link below)? I noticed the coloring was a little different than what is offered from Apache, but I don't think that will matter that much. Any advice is appreciated. I am coming from using the plastic red/white/blue chips from the 70s. So any modern chips will be a great improvement for me. Thanks in advance.

So I can't speak for that specific site or the Apache site, but I have played with these chips; Smooth Monte Carlo, twice before. This was before my PCF days about five years ago.

I liked them! They are "sluggos", but I liked them. My only complaint about them was the t100/t500 were too close in color. If you get the ones you're looking at, I would get the t500 in white.

Hope this helps!

What they say “smooth edges and shuffles better,” do they really mean the edges are rounded or beveled?

Not sure as I haven't handled them in awhile. I do remember the ones I handled had smooth edges, but I never tried to stand one on end. I had some claysmith chips that had the flashing around the edge. I'm assuming it means that these don't have the flashing and are probably rounded a bit like a casino used paulson.

In regards to shuffling, I've never had an issue shuffling bicycle tires or mint paulsons.

Yeah I still have the same question. Would love a Monte Carlo set with smooth edges. The ones on The Poker Store . Com are a bit more expensive then from Apache. What did you end up doing?

Literally just posted a thread a few minutes ago showing this set. I bought them from discountcasinogear.com
Absolutely love them.

They are an ok chip. Some of the edges can be sharp but not too bad and they dont look as good in person i would say especially the $5. I bought a 600pc set and was pretty disappointed. I would suggest getting the 13.5g monacos on thepokerstore.com they look better and feel way better and more smooth and you can get 1000pc set for $220. Alll in all tho the monte carlos are fine
